I don't spend a lot of time entering contests, but sometimes they're just hard to resist. So when I received the December newsletter from FlawfulFibers, I jumped right on it. I've admired Julie's yarns and rovings for a long time, and I've just been trying to figure out a way to justify buying bunches of them (I'm not really much of a knitter, so I'd have to find other ways to use them).
Well apparently I was in a silly mood when I saw the FlawfulFibers contest. All I really needed to do was to visit Julie's site, choose a favorite (that was the hard part), and respond with my name and address so I could be entered into a drawing. What did I do? I wrote a poem. It only took me a few extra minutes, and I was composing it in my head as I looked for something I could call my favorite.
And the nicest thing happened!!! Julie liked my poem so much that she included it in her January newsletter!!! Even better than that, she's given me an Honorable Mention for my poem and a $10 gift certificate!!!!! I've already been on the FlawfulFibers site looking around to see what I want to get with my certificate, but I've been told I might want to wait for a little while before redeeming it because she's going to be adding new things soon.
Lest you think the decision on what to use my $10 gift certificate on is an easy one, I've narrowed it down to these... (and this is without seeing the new things Julie's going to be listing!)... I think... but there might be more... there are just so many I like!
Chocogrubs (handspun yarn) - the texture looks incredible
Harp Singer (handspun yarn) - aren't those colors incredible?!?!
Mermaids (handspun yarn) - the colors and the texture are amazing
Torque V2 (handspun yarn) - don't you just love the thick and thin?!?
Okay, I've just realized that I love way too many things on FlawfulFibers. Check it out for yourself, either on the website or in the Etsy shop.
